This morning in the grocery store, there seemed to be a bit more stress as people shopped for their Thanksgiving items. I heard several people ask if they knew if other locations still had certain items. I overheard one couple deciding if the 88 pound turkey would be big enough!
For some, a holiday week can be stressful. Travel plans, dinner plans and how to balance blended family visits.
Today, my prayer is for us to slow down. No speed reading! Perhaps, make a list of people you would like to thank on Thanksgiving day.
I say that I am always thankful to God, but this morning I realized that I don’t share that with Him often enough. Oh sure, in my speed prayers, I say those words but this weekend I really want to let God know. In my prayer journal at church tonight, I am writing out my prayer of thanks to God.
Blessings for your day with my sincere thanks for being here as we continue to discover and share God’s grace, faith, hope and love.
“Now, our God, we give you thanks, and praise your glorious name.”
- 1 Chronicles 29:13
